Fibromyalgia gluten sensitivity

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia gluten sensitivity


1943833 tn?1349280189 I have wondered often over the last few years if I have Fibromyalgia, but have never asked a doctor about it because I don't seem to have the tender points. I'm wondering how many of these symptoms are "common" for fibromyalgia. Or maybe CFS? -occasional severe sensitivity to noise. I can be sitting in a room, with people around me and noises I would normally not mind (kids playing, etc) will "hurt". I don't really have a headache, and it's not an actual pain.
Avatar f tn Many of these have overlapping symptoms. These include gluten intolerance, gout (a form of arthritis), and restless leg syndrome. Some drs believe food sensitivity itself could sometimes be responsible for some of the pain and fatigue of FM. Seven foods to avoid: 1. Aspartame (nutraSweet) 2. Food additives including MSG (momosodium glutamine) and nitrates, 3. Sugar, fructose, and simple carbohydrates, 4. Caffeine, 5. Yeast and gluten, 6. Dairy, 7. Nightshade plants. Hope it helps.
Avatar f tn Braly is a long-time clinical investigator into allergy, sensitivity, and health. He warns that anyone who has gluten sensitivity also has other food sensitivities, frequently many of them. Braly’s view that gluten/gliadin/glutenin sensitivity and dairy product sensitivity are among the more common sensitivities that can lead to the development of many allergies. When gluten sensitivity (or dairy product sensitivity) is found, comprehensive allergy testing should always be done.
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome to MedHelp. As far as I can tell, you do have symptoms that look like fibromyalgia. A rhematologist is the kind of dr. that dxes this. They will check for pressure points. There is also a tilt table test that can help decide if it is fibro or chronic fatigue.
Avatar m tn • My head just feels really foggy as if its more difficult to think things through • Loss of sex drive and I no longer feel as though I can get as full of an erection. • I have an extreme sensitivity to alcohol that I never use to have. I don’t mean that I get drunk easy but I get hangovers very easy. Even from just having one drink it makes me feel worse the next day. • I have a rash on my lower legs and forearms that’ seems to come and go.
Avatar n tn It is difficult to attribute all your symptoms to one neurological disorder, although some disorders that could be evaluated for would be obstructuve sleep apnea (causes fatigue, more common after rapid weight gain), diabetes, celiac disease (blood tests available, gluten diet sensitivity), polymyalgia rheumatica (WSR blood test check for this) and even weight gain/being overweight.
470168 tn?1237474845 I am diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and my son with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. I am noticing he is getting some muscle/joint pain, only lasting 24 hours, but it is similar to how my conditions started. Does anyone else have a dual diagnosis or have both within the family?
139792 tn?1498589250 Imagine a life in which your favorite comfort foods, such as pasta, bread, cereal and cookies, could cause you to become violently ill. This is reality for an estimated 3 million Americans who have been diagnosed with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that involves a severe reaction to foods containing gluten. Growing awareness of the condition, combined with consumer demand, has brought an increasing number of gluten-free products to store shelves in recent years.
508033 tn?1211893077 I wondered if there had ever been a connection between fibromyalgia and gleutin allergy, so I googled it. Well I was surprised... I came across this: It had alot of interesting info and thoughts about how we, humans, were not ment to digest gultien. It described how some people react to it badly but it goes undiagnosed.
Avatar f tn The video makes it clear that gluten sensitivity is NOT the same thing as gluten intolerance. Gluten sensitivity involves gluten ALLERGY, whether the person also has Celiac or not. Celiac is also an auto immune illness as well. So, there is definitely more involved with Celiac than the digestive symptoms that people usually think of. So, varying degrees of inability to eat gluten is the common denominator of all these illnesses.
1852058 tn?1320162300 You most certainly are NOT alone, so please never feel that way. And you absolutely have NOTHING to be ashamed of. I, too, have fibro (along with several other health issues, including other chronic pain issues) - so I do definitely understand how you're feeling.
Avatar f tn I was told the ANA wouldn't show obvious gluten sensitivity unless I'd been recently eating a gluten-rich diet. I'll dig up my labs results and post the before and afters. I did not know about the permeability test.
1047234 tn?1253547296 I have hypermoble joints which is connected to fibro, (I just learned that recently). One of the things that O- can have is celeac disease or sensitivity to gluten so you may want to check into that. If you are not seeing a pain specialist I recommend that. And then I had a hysterectomy that just has been a nightmare, I have had several surgeries for the complications. They debated about using mesh, but thank God they didn't because I have heard horror stories about it.
280418 tn?1306329510 * Note that the authors cautioned that the mortality risk for patients with gluten sensitivity may have been overestimated. Patients with mild intestinal inflammation and gluten sensitivity have a higher risk of death, even if their symptoms are not severe enough to warrant a diagnosis of full-blown celiac disease, a new Swedish study found.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure if I have actual celiac disease or just a sensitivity to gluten, but it doesn't matter. My suggestion, then, is that you look into natural remedies and treatment modalities rather than (or in addition to) conventional medicine; instead of beating yourself up for a diagnosis, just experiment and see what makes you feel better. And if your body is telling you one thing and your docs are telling you another, listen to your body. Best wishes for good health in the future!
Avatar f tn all they do is check to see if ur trigger points hurt when they push on them there are 18 and i have had fm for about 19 years and ur whole body hurts i know i did the same thing about the systems i thought it was all in my head to but it just kept on getting worse go see ur pcp and they can check for you also. take care talk soon let me know. any more wuestion i will be here for u.
Avatar n tn Celiac used to be thought to be rare, but actually about 1 in 100 people have it and 97% remain undiagnosed because doctors are still not very unknowledgeable, blood tests are only about 77% accurate, etc. And, even more people have gluten sensitivity and intolerance, with just as many severe symptoms, but don't have full blown celiac. I lead a celiac/gluten intolerance support group and would be happy to answer any questions. I am not a medical professional, but I can share what I've learned.
Avatar m tn I have a gluten sensitivity. I react this way for 2 to 4 days after eating gluten.

Avatar f tn I am 23 years old and I no longer have health insurance, so getting a blood test for Celiac's disease may have to wait. I've heard of people testing negative, but still having a sensitivity to gluten, so they still give it up altogether. As for me, I've given up eating gluten and I already notice a remarkable difference. I've had stomach problems since a child and doctors never knew what was wrong with me. After doing much research, I decided to cut wheat out of my diet.
Avatar f tn This has been going on for about a week and a half... I am 48 year old. Was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity and fibromyalgia and depression. This is recent feeling so lousy. everytime, everytime, i eat i get nauseous and light headed and swirly.
Avatar f tn (A) is relevant to yeast overgrowth and increased tartaric acid interfering with your Kreb's cycle(metabolic process) (B) is relevant to gluten intolerance/sensitivity/celiacs. Note, you must familiarize yourself with all the foods that contain gluten, should you indeed be gluten intolerant or sensitive. They're plenty which you would NEVER suspect. 2. You may try Dr.
Avatar f tn Also look into wheat/gluten sensitivity and also other food sensitivity like dairy, as it may be another contributing factor. Cyrex labs has a lot of info on this subject. Let me know if you need more details.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease, Fibromyalgia, and IBS. I have migrains, fatigue, nausea, lightheadedness, concentration/memory problems, light sensitivity, stiffness throughout the neck,shoulders, and entire body. Weakness to the point where I drop things. Constipation that I have never experienced for 3 weeks long. Have taken all laxatives that are over the counter. Had an xray that showed I was backed up. Had a CT scan that showed I have a ruptured ovarian cyst 2cm.

What is the likelihood of having all 3 Types? How to treat? ... Autoimmune disorders such as I've mentioned...
Avatar m tn I searched online and closest symptoms I found are IBS with Fibromyalgia; also my physician is trying to find out if it is due to auto immune defiency; please some body help me.
1618577 tn?1388803044 my celiac test came back negative but there's a chance I may still have a gluten sensitivity. the film is like someone spilled vegetable oil on the water but its very faint. I'm on align currently which so far isn't doing much. I'm getting tested for small intestinal bacteria overgrowth on the 28th.
Avatar n tn If you have gluten intolerance, then you probably have celiac disease or Non Celiac gluten sensitivity. There are blood tests called celiac test to detect gluten intolerance. In all probability once the gut issues are taken care of the headaches will vanish. Also get your grand daughter’s eye tested for refractive errors like myopia and hypermetropia. If all these are fine then a neurologist should be seen to rule out migraines. Hope this helps.
